On a cold crisp morning Romsey U12 Girls travelled to Winchester.
The team looked strong from the outset with nearly the entire first third being played in the Winchester half. Fantastic attacking runs and crosses coming from Elsie on the right wing supported by Caitlin saw a few chances on goal, all frustrated by excellent saves from the Winchester keeper.
The second third opened with more fast paced runs followed by accurate crossing from Hannah that forced errors in the Winchester defence creating opportunities for Camilla and Grace. Finally Clara picked out Grace with a laser accurate pass from midfield, Grace then beat a Winchester defender and the goalkeeper to open the scoring tally.
The last third of the game opened with Grace’s second, calmly scored from a rebounded save. As the team began to tire Winchester managed a few attacking runs into the Romsey half, all of which were quickly shut down and cleared by some great defensive team work, special mention to Clara and Maya for cool heads under pressure. Grace completed her hat-trick having been fed by a great pass from Caitlin. A final chance from a Winchester short corner was quickly smothered and cleared by some fantastic defensive team work.
A real team effort from everyone today, well done girls!
